Hi Ozbargainers,

I spent the past week counting literally tens of thousands of little boxes for end of year stock take. What I learned from this experience is that I have plenty of "odds and sods" left over from current and previous Ozbargain deals, eBay listings, ended store promos and I honestly found quite a few dozen cartons of medication (worth thousands of dollars) I didn't even realise we had in stock. As we have all of this product (and no money), I thought I should run a bit of a cash conversion program over the next few weeks and clear out the excess. Anyway, as the old salesman spiel goes - my loss is your gain, I'll bundle up allot of this "overstock" I have and push it out in this and future bundles.

This is a my highest ever box count deal (10 boxes, 9 different medications) in 1 deal.

I've put together as much as I think I can reasonably fit into a small express satchel and tried to keep the price as close to the Ozbargain Goldilox bundle price of $50 as I could, normal pharmacy retail would be in excess of $100-120 and without even checking I am sure I'm blowing any online competitors out of the water with this bundle:

    This guy is obsessed with diarrhoea. Bloody hard to get it when we've barely been able to travel much until recently, but I'll take the challenge.

    • +6

      You dont need to travel to get Diharrhoea

      • +4

        I personally do. Ever since I went to India for 3 months many years ago, my stomach has become super charged. Regular Aussie bacteria doesn't cut it anymore. You should release an information pamphlet titled " You don't need to travel to get diarrhoea" though just to let people know they can still get the same experience in a domestic setting. Sounds like a real page turner.

    • +15

      With all the kfc deals around here, you’ll be shitting yourself soon enough

  • +3

    Why would I need generic Zyrtec, Claratyne and Telfast together… potentially silly Q, aren’t they all the same eg hayfever / allergy ?

    • +17

      They have a different active ingredient. Some people have a preference for one but some people also find periodically rotating between them is more effective than sticking with one.

    • some people are also allergic/cannot take one vs the other because of other medication they are taking

      • +1

        Then you wouldn’t buy all three like in this deal

        • +1

          you probably wouldnt. just providing another difference between them

        • -1

          Imagine if you're buying for more than one person.

    • +2

      Should also change your antihistamine as your body might get used to the same stuff and becomes less effective.

      • +1

        Shouldn't we do the same if we are taking the same tablet everyday for cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes, etc?

        • I think you’ll find that to be different that with this type of product

  • Knocked it out of the park again with this deal. Sure to snap one up if you haven't already

  • +12

    It's worth noting that phenylephrine does nothing when taken orally, so the cold and flu tablets are basically only paracetamol.

    • +1

      Took new codral and learned this the hard way. Worst cold of my life and had to tough it out with the equivalent of 69c panamax haha

    • +4

      So you’re saying suppository is more effective for cold and flu tablets?

      If I keep sneezing should I switch to the diarrhoea medication?

      Please advise???

      • +2

        If I keep sneezing should I switch to the diarrhoea medication?

        only if you want to be VerticallyConstipated

      • +5

        He's probably referring to the fact that there is next to no clinical evidence that phenylephrine does anything for a cold and flu when administered orally, and plenty of studies that show that it is no more effective than nothing. It is used intravenously with effect as a vasoconstrictor, but has been substituted for pseudoephedrine in new medicine formulations to make that harder to access despite the fact that it doesn't do anything.

      • +1

        I fully support the scientific method. Take from that what you will.

        Edit: do not forget the last step - report your findings.

    • +2

      I can Second this.

      I used to think Phenylephrine was totally useless, but when taken as a nasal spray it works wonders for opening up the nasal passages, so it has it's uses. But putting it in tablet form is about as useful as eating deepheat to relieve a muscle ache.

      • +2

        Snorting crushed up tablets? Recommended or not? :p

        • +1

          Hey if you want to meet God, sometimes you have get creative

          • @outlander: I think you might see something with horns at the other end of the spectrum

            • @bOngOCaT: With all this diarrhea talk I legit thought you said rectum not spectrum.. I was like why you wanting something with horns near your rectum 😂😂

        • was about to ask the same question

    • +3

      yeah came here to say similar

      the cold and flu tabs with phenylephrine are junk

    • Do you mean cold and flu can be cured by taking paracetamol ?

    • +2

      I also think it's worth noting that while the 'day' tablets are effectively just paracetamol the 'night' tablets contain chlorpheniramine maleate which is quite an effective drowsy antihistamine.

    • Im going to take this as advice to shoot up some sudafed.

      • Get prescription Sudafed as it’s better

        • Why? Does it contain pseudoephedrine?

    • +1

      Difference between taking a cold /flu remedy and not.

      If you don’t take any your cold will last an entire week
      If you take them it’ll only last 7 days

  • thanks OP got these to take to friday night kickons with the boys

  • Can OP provide any insights on the comment above by another poster "phenylephrine does nothing when taken orally"

    • I'd like an answer to this too, I asked on a previous thread and didn't get one

      • +3

        Whats the question?

        If you want to know why its there if it's useless in oral form, it's because they started with ephedrine, then moved to pseudoephedrine. But the boys and girls were using them to make meth, which looks bad from a business perspective, so they made them restricted access. They still wanted something they could sell in supermarkets, so they chose to switch to something else that sounded similar. PE, Pseudoephedrine… PE, Phenylephrine. It's just marketing nonsense.

        • The question is why is he trying to sell us something that doesn't do anything?

          It doesn't need to be included in this bundle.

          • +1

            @Domingo: You can probably deduce that there’s excess stock of it because it’s useless.

            I get why they want to limit pseudoephedrine access, but it really is what works

            • @Danimal86: If that's the case, I as a member of the OzBargain community, am annoyed that a useless product is being peddled here.

              It feels unethical that the entire industry even sell it.

              • @Domingo: Tbf coldsore creams are also useless, as are half the vitamins they sell, among other things. There’s potential benefit in selling people placebos, and they’re not doing any harm, so I guess they figure it’s morally ambiguous?
                There’s benefit in the secondary ingredients in the tabs, and a very small number of people in clinical trials reported positive effect, so I guess there’s something there in a bundle setting… maybe?

  • Stims?

  • Is the cold and flu medication the same one as the one you have to provide ID to get from behind the counter?

    • This would be the Phenylephrine Hydrochloride based, not the Pseudoephedrine Hydrochloride based cold n flu tablets.

    • +2

      No, this is the useless version (Pure Effluent I like to call it) . Just ask for the real stuff and provide ID at the chemist.

    • +1

      No. The need for a pharmacist to confirm a therapeutic need and (in most states) record your ID applies to pseudoephedrine. The product here contains phenylephrine, which (unlike pseudoephedrine) is demonstrably useless as a decongestant.

  • $50.99, not $50. Please update title.

    • +1

      This was not me - a friendly Ozbargain Mod changed the title and stuffed up the price ??

      C'mon mods…

      • You can still fix it though…

        • Bob the builder

  • Question.

    I went to the pharmacy and they ran out of kids nurofen.

    Given my daughter weighs 20kg, the recommended dosage is 5ml of 200mg/5ml, isn’t this the same as 1 Ibuprofen 200mg tablet?

    Pharmacist refused to deny or confirm haha

    • +1

      Don't take medical advice from a stranger on the internet but.

      You are right. The math seems correct. Both the nurofen and the ibuprofen tablet contain the same amount of ibuprofen.

      • Haha Was hoping the OP would chime in.

        I didn’t factor in the choking hazard

    • +3

      Depends how old your kid is, the tablets can be a choking hazard for kids, hence why the liquid is recommended. Absorption rate of tablet vs liquid is different and their digestive system is not as strong as ours, plus they’ve got a product specifically marketed for children so the tablets aren’t really officially tested and/or rated for little kids - hence the pharmacist won’t give you a solid answer lest they get blamed.

      • That makes sense.

        Cheers

  • Get codral cold and flu old formula.

    • Original formula*

    • Unfortunately you can’t sell that to randos on the internet, especially in bulk lol

    • Same please, always use them. Generic is fine !

  • +1

    Hey OP, got any Somac tabs?

  • Would love to see more heartburn medicines included with these bundles. Somac please….

  • +2

    Friendly reminder that Phenylephrine (PE) does nothing. Ask for cold and flu with Pseudoephedrine instead.

    • Google search, chemist warehouse search, unable to find medicine with pseudoephedrine though

      • It’s over counter only

    • Only available in store, small pack size, with details recorded on govt database, we can help you with this - but clearly not online as part of an Ozb bundle.

      • Generic brand ?

  • Any more? Showing none left now

  • My Doctor prescribed Azelastine/Fluticasone 125/50 Nasal spray. Do you have a cheaper generic version or something similar? In Darwin its $52 for one
